Elections Canada experienced some headaches dealing with the longest federal campaign in modern Canadian history, says a new report from the chief electoral officer.
Justin Trudeau's Liberal party spent just over $43 million to win last fall's federal election -- $1.2 million more than Stephen Harper's Conservatives.
Elections Canada says the turnout of young voters in last October's election was up sharply from 2011.
The Liberals stockpiled almost $700,000 into four B.C. ridings in the last election, dethroning two Conservative incumbents and one New Democrat, and losing to the NDP in the hotly contested riding of Vancouver East, election spending data show.
More often than not, the biggest spenders did not win on Oct. 19, an analysis by The Canadian Press indicates.
Most Canadians who didn't vote in last year's federal election were either not interested in politics or too busy to make their way to the polling station, according to Statistics Canada.
Elections Canada says last fall's marathon federal election campaign cost $443 million to administer -- 53 per cent more than the 2011 election. And that's just the preliminary estimate.
Elections Canada says a judicial recount confirms that NDP candidate Marjolaine Boutin-Sweet won the Montreal riding of Hochelaga in last month’s federal election.
Elections Canada says a judicial recount has declared an NDP candidate the winner in a northern Saskatchewan riding.
Conservative candidate Bernard Genereux has been officially declared elected in the Quebec riding of Montmagny-L'Islet-Kamouraska-Riviere-du-Loup riding, after a judicial recount.
Student groups say young voters -- a group that typically registers some of the lowest turnout levels in the country -- cast more ballots in last week's federal election than they did four years ago.
